Letters from the South Pole
These fantastic typographic posters are for Südpol (South Pole) a Swiss music, dance and theatre centre. They have been designed by Felix Pfäffli a designer based in Luzern, Switzerland to promote the cultural centre’s schedule of upcoming events.
The top one reads “lets get it ON!”

Trying out a few watercolour and typography combinations
Head up. Ben Howard knows. #calligraphy #lettering
I recently shot a little project about Jam Records in Falmouth - an independent record/coffee shop/music venue. It’s oozing with nostalgic cool, but very down to earth - a rarity it seems when it comes to ‘real’ music stores (see the film ‘High Fidelity’ for an example)! If you’re in the area, go by and say hello to Mandy (owner) and Bob (dog).
Re-medium by Tomasz Dobiszewski, 2002-2005
Tomasz Dobiszewski in his work “Re-medium” creates a camera out of a pill pack. The space in which the image appears is where the pill lay just a moment ago. The image might be a vision after the pill has been taken or this vision might be the consequence of taking the image. The author, for whom pinhole photography has always been an uncovering medium, is trying to convince us by putting instructions next to the photographs of how to use them in the shape of an informative brochure added to the medicine, that during “visual pauperisation” the images will still appear, even if only as placebo.

Falmouth’s special hour:
For issue No5, I hired the talented Adam Whitcroft to come up with 14 unique icons that would decorate and illustrate the cities we profiled in our “Web Worker’s Field Guide”. He’s done such an amazing job that we both decided to make them available under Creative Commons for everyone to use.
So please go ahead, download them from Adam’s website and incorporate them into your artwork. Happy creating!
